Arsenal join Newcastle in race for Dijon star

Reports claim Arsenal scout Gilles Grimandi watched Corgne in action for Dijon against Paris St Germain on Sunday.

Corgne made an impressive performance for a Dijon side that eventually lost 2-1 against table topping PSG.

Grimandi has watched Corgne in action three times this season.

Newcastle are also keen on signing Corgne and had a £3million bid for the midfielder rejected in January.
